Real Friends, the pop-punk rockers from Illinois have blasted a new music video onto the scene. Premiering today on FLOOD Magazine, their new video for “Me First” is from their third studio album ‘Composure’.
“Me First,” the intense opening track from the album, instills a sense of confidence that flows throughout the whole record. The striking accompanying video matches the song’s audacity with its cheeky horror and comic book-styled violence.
“We went with a more light hearted and cinematic approach than in our past videos,” says Kyle Fasel. “Me First” finds the band trapped in a mansion being stalked by a knife/broken bottle/cat o’nine tails-wielding murderess who ultimately dispatches them one at a time and serves them up on a silver platter.
The 10 tracks on this album have challenged the band as musicians and friends. From nailing down the best pop hooks with producer Mike Green (The Aces, All Time Low, The Mowgli’s, Paramore) that showcase the band’s progression from a pop-punk band to full-fledged pop-rock juggernaut, to touching on topics in their songwriting such as mental health, being accepted, and above all, learning to love yourself.
